My daughter has experienced excellent care with doctor Kathy. She was under great stress with a skin complaint that she has been suffering all her life. She has had very little sympathy from the NHS and this is clearly a distressing matter for my young daughter who has been missing school, activities, play dates. Etc. Due to the discomfort of her condition. We arrived to see doctor Kathy who treated my daughter​ with great care. She excelled and we have the utmost trust in her to do the best for my daughter. Anyone who is thinking of booking an appointment should not hesitate in the slightest I have every faith that you would get the best treatment like we have experienced. Nothing was too much and the receptionist was extremely helpful too.

I visited Dr Taghipour nearly 2 weeks ago on Friday 10 November in her Harley Street surgery in London. I went because my skin condition had been getting worse and worse over a period of several months and my GP in South Wales had not been able to recommend medications that produced improvement, so we agreed a private visit to a specialist was the best course of action. Dr Taghipour had treated by daughter for several years for Hailey Hailey Disease, so she was a natural choice for a suitable specialist for me to visit. Dr Taghipour fitted me in to her appointments within two days of my phone call, which was brilliant. Her examination was very thorough indeed and she initially thought I might have a mixture of Hailey Hailey and eczema (my previous long term diagnosis). So she took two biopsies for analysis by three tests. Within a week the diagnosis from two of the tests was confirmed as Hailey Hailey. The medication she prescribed has worked brilliantly, it was a mixture of stronger steroid tablets and ointment than my GP had prescribed, antibiotic tablets and a soap substitute for washing with. Since using these medications and following Dr Taghipour's other advice my skin is transformed! All the blisters have gone, my skin is much smoother, none of the patches are weeping and the reddening of the sites of the original blisters is getting less and less. A brilliant result! To make matters even better I feel much better in myself, the constant itching has gone, I am also less tired, happier, more active and feel far more like living life to the full. So it's fingers crossed for the future - I would have no hesitation in visiting her again. I cannot recommend her enough.

Dr Taghipour was very professional and detailed in her work. Post op I had no pain, no swelling and used no pain killers. My scar is minimal and very tidy.

I have had fantastic treatment from Dr Taghipour. She couldnt have been more attentive or accommodating. My procedure was quick and painless, and although it is too soon to tell, I am sure I will be happy with the end results. I would happily recommend her to any friends or family.

Dr Taghipour and her staff were friendly, approachable and very helpful. My consultation was professional and I found Dr Taghipour to be very personable and sympathetic to my situation. Surgery was painless and easy, all risks were clearly explained, after care service was also excellent. All costs were clearly stated upfront. I hope I never require further service from Dr Taghipour and the team at Skin55 but I would not hesitate to return if I did. Highly recommended.

Very nice manner, has both clinical experience and a research background. Hospital well organised and as you would expect from the private sector. When I needed a biopsy I was in and out of hospital in 8 minutes flat.

I first consulted Dr. Taghipour three years ago when l used to reside in London. I recently returned to London from my new home in New York City to seek her advice and treatment on a certain condition. I value her expertize and consultative approach with patients. I was very pleased with the result of the treatment and highly recommend her.

Kathy Taghhipour is a wonderful dermatologist, in 3 visits she has transformed my skin and my life. Previously unable not to wear make up, now my skin is better without make up and my skin glows in ways that I never imagined possible. She is extremely thorough in her approach, making sure the treatment plan is right for you. She also has recommended/suggested great products that save you time and money trying to find things that work alongside the treatment plan. I only wish I'd found Dr Taghipour sooner.

I spend a few months a year in Miami and have a yearly check up of my moles with Dr Taghipour. Most recently she removed a mole on my leg with such skill that even I can’t find the scar myself! She is very knowledgeable, kind and caring with amazing surgical skills, and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
